States of Mind...seeking comfort or truth and inner peace
I Corinthians 1:18
18 For the preaching of the cross (the death and actual resurrection of Jesus Christ) is to them that perish (those who reject God) foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
Hebrews 11: 6
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him [him = God]:
for he [he = the one who is searching to find God] that cometh to God must believe that he [God] is [exists],
and that he [God] is a rewarder of them that diligently [honestly and sincerely] seek him.
God sent Jesus Christ to save all those who chose to place their belief in his actual words and message into Him.
But everyone is free to chose. Chosing, obviously is a choice, but not chosing is a choice as well.
How humans can be forgiven of their mistakes to the point of being, one day, 100% HOLY, is what is explained.
The problem is not that people are sinners (that much is obvious, like breathing). The problem is that none of us individually can be 100% HOLY 100% of the time. THAT is the problem, since God cannot allow anyone who is not Holy into Heaven.
That is why Jesus Christ had to volunteer to demonstrate through His death and resurrection, that a solution to the inner state of man could be found, a solution which had to be 100% Love and 100% Justice.
God is both 100% justice and 100% Love. Regardless of how this page is found, the message of God is Help, hope and encouragement, to those who read it, to those who seek truth, to those who want to truly know the love of God, to those who can handle THAT reality.
God's unconditional love is a free gift. But like any Free gift, you have to chose to accept it.
just a few Verses from the message God left to mankind (all humans), the New Testament

Pretty good little work
I am not sure how its possible for one individual to conclude that keywords will not help ANY ONE to find what they are seeking. Is the presumption that you somehow can look into the mind of each and every single person here, and conclude that you know for a fact, that no one , not any one, has ever been helped by arriving here by use of any of the keywords listed ? That is quite a reach, even for a human mortal, is it not ?
Actually, it is the description of the item, that is designed to inform people what the item is, if not through the title.
There is no need to be overwhelmed just because there are more words than you may be used to. Most of those words are either religious or philosophical, so they are what they are supposed to be. The purpose of the keywords is so that when people type those words in, they will find material that can be correlated to those keywords. That you may not understand the relationship between the keywords and an item may be your reality, but that does not mean that everyone else is somehow confused.
The title of the short work (accurately described as simple), is
Christianity - how to be saved, have eternal life, obtain forgiveness, find God and be a Christ follower [Jesus Christ]
People understand right away what is being offered. That is the way it is supposed to be. It is true that there are other much more complicated works on history, archeology or Biblical subjects that are also available
On this site, as there are also millions of other works.
The question is not whether people are turned off or on. Without getting into what that may mean, the fact is that people are offered a good reminder about what it means to be a Christian, and how it is Free, and how a relationship with God, is something that God can give to each of us, as His gift. If some are turned off by that, then that is up them. No matter what the gift or the package, some are bound to reject it, just by virtue of its offer. We each decide our spiritual destiny. Some decide by intention, others decide by default, or wanting to believe that spiritual matters do not matter.
It would be unfortunate to remember this, while standing in line, having to personally decide whether to accept a sign of allegiance on your right hand or forehead (without which you cannot buy or sell), knowing that allegiance to a false counterfeit Christ (Christ means messiah) will guarantee an eternity to the wrong place, because you will have volunteered yourself into eternal separation from God.
That option seeming like a genuine no-win scenario, perhaps the idea of a Free gift from God, through connection to Him, is not something that is a bad thing, even if you arrive at the page through what you perceived to be as too many keywords. Thousands of authors here, thousands of posters, whatever they post remains within their choice. We all chose, one way or another.

What I need to know...for myself...about my own eternal life
This is a good little ebook. It is short and to the point. Better yet, this information is the standard historic definition of what accurate Christianity is. It is not a religion, it is not a set of do's and don'ts. God is not about regulation, but rather personal connection. God loves each one of us, though we each have trouble actually believing it.
Christianity is actually a relationship, a personal connection between each individual (who knows how to accept the gift of Eternal Life) and God, through Jesus Christ.
This short Ebook explains what that term, salvation, means. Everybody cares about what happens to them after they die. Still, obviously, there are many who do not want the information. What they want is freedom from the liability, of not having the information. But you are a descendant of the one who had that liability as the ancestor of the human race. Liability attaches, because of your birth. You cannot change your DNA. You are the reflection of the DNA of your biological mother and father. That is also true spiritually also. The problem for humans is that they are born into a state of default. They are born destined for eternal separation from God, because of what their ancestors did. The connection to God was broken.
The only way to restore that connection is to do what the New Testament explains: believe. It is not about church membership, it is not about the labels, it is not about being born into a supposed Christian family. It is not about being baptized. None of those things can confer either eternal life or connection to God.
All we each can do is read the information in the New Testament and understand what is the liability if we chose not to follow it. Our destiny is already assured without it. We are on the wrong path, even though we have the ability to make a different choice, even though we now, can change our own destiny forever.
If God was not serious, He would not have made an alternate path (from the one we are born into) for us to be able to reach Him. Some people want to pretend the material is not relevant, or it is not true, or we do not need the information. A decision to not decide though is still a decision. Only it is a decision in the wrong direction.
Soon, the prince of this world will try to reclaim this planet for himself. HE will arrive with a New Messiah, complete with signs, wonders, miracles and a system of buying and selling with a tatoo/mark on the right hand or forehead of each human. Computers already keep track of millions and millions of records. To set up a system to do this is not difficult at this point.
The system will simply require each individual to embrace the false teachings of the wrong messiah, and his sponsor (Lucifer). That is the system that has been predicted for 2000 years. It was predicted in the books of Daniel and Revelation and is explained in the works of Hislop (2 Babylons) and Larkin (his book on Revelation), among others.
We each can make our own choice, though there is only one way that God established for Him to be able to garantee the outcome for each of us. Why would you expect to be able to have a place in a different dimention (Heaven) if you have no connection to the owner ?
Christianity is not a system of good works. No christian can change their eternal destiny, when you either do accept to follow God, or you decide to reject Him. It is just that this choice is yours. It is the only one you actually can make, you will either be making this choice by intention or by default, and the consequences then fall on each of us individually, based on what we have chosen. Since God can read all our thoughts and knows all our actions, God knows what we actually have chosen. These things are not a surprise to Him.
So preserve your option, find out how to receive Eternal Life, and decide if Heaven is a place where you want to go. For those who insist on sharing the same place of Eternal separation from God that was actually originally prepared for Lucifer when he rebelled, the choice of sharing in his fate, his destiny, his prison (Hell) and his eternal sentence, that remains an option for those who really want to go there. SO you decide by your action, by what you do, where you want to go.
Some people may be upset with the messenger. Make no mistake. I have no more ability to change the outcome of any of this than you do. I had to make my own choice also. That day came for me also. I had to decide whether I would investigate this for myself, or whether I would believe all the propagandists telling me to "delay, delay, delay..." and "none of that really matters". Why does none of that matters ? Are they the ones who will be experiencing eternal sepration from God for eternity, because they conned me into THAT choice ? It DEFINITELY MATTERS. It matters to me. Your destiny and destination matters to you, dosen't it ?
The truth is that the consequences are all that is mine. No one will take the consequences of my own choice about spiritual matter, except me.
Lucifer is a very old being. He knows how to get humans to delay finding God. His goal is to get us to delay making the right choice, until one second after we die, when it is too late. Purgatory is an invented myth exactly so that we each will delay, thinking that our decision can then be fixed afterwards. That is simply a clever deception. THere is zero evidence of purgatory in the teachings of Jesus or the New Testament, despite the wishes of the false teachers who later inserted that in other false books. Don't delay. Since you are making a choice, right now, of what you will do, and what you will learn, make sure it is the
right choice for you.
Some people out there think they will live to see old age. Others have also thought this, and their last day on the planet, was the day that they read something like this, where God was saying to them, you have an option to change your destiny and your eternal destination, if you want to believe me and RE-SET the your life for contact with God.
